There is absolutely no evidence that we would have to settle for somebody taking this job. So tired of the "who can we get" argument.Yup, fire the coach and pay the full buyout. Settle for whomever is willing to take the job. Has it really been that long ago that everyone forgot that is how we ended up with Mike Reilly? We fired a coach and then went weeks without anyone being interested in the job so we get whatever dead fish washes up on shore. Seems like a solid business decision.
FWIW, I hate losing just as much as the next person. I also don't want to pay coaches not to coach and still have a coach that is not taking us anywhere. Nebraska has been in this black hole for over a decade now.
Secondly, because we've made mistakes in the past, now you want to stop paying coaches not to coach with the worst coach the school has had since the 1950s. Sounds logical.
